     Solid traffic at the complete review in November, especially in the run-up to Christmas.
     The bestseller list, however, remains largely unmoving: a few shifts in position, but almost no different titles, and no new titles breaking in. At least thePeter Weiss-centenary led to some additional interest in the author.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014 , and 2015 lists.
